Corrie’s Frank Foster will be found not guilty of raping Carla Connor as this exciting storyline continues.
The businessman will walk away free when a jury acquits him of sexually assaulting his former fiance after she dumped him on the eve of their wedding, according to the Daily Star,“Needless to say Frank is quick to return to the cobbles and gloat about his innocence, knowing full well he’s guilty as sin,” a source told the newspaper.
The trial, which will be screened next year, is said to feature some of the “most powerful” episodes of the soap ever aired. Carla (Alison King) will be forced to recount explicit details of the night of the attack and answer questions about her relationship with Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) as Frank’s lawyers attempt to ruin her reputation.
This then brings into question her current relationship with Peter Barlow and the fact that they are having an affair which Carla denies. However Frank has hired a private investigator who has evidence of the couple kissing. Leanne is then outraged in court and brands Carla a “liar”. This has a massive impact on the trial and it’s conclusion.
Andrew Lancel, who plays Frank in the soap, described his character as “very, very clever” with a “twisted mind” in an interview with Digital Spy.
